Committee Meetings

Before the Covid-19 pandemic the committee of trustees met in person several times a year to ensure the smooth running of the organisation. Like many others, the meetings were moved to Zoom in 2020 and have continued that way although are happening more often now and usually each month.

The Committee is now engaged on discussing an agreed future for the Friends, given the intention of the cinema to launch its own membership scheme involving discounted tickets, running in parallel to the Friends. The Committee anticipates that this will result in a smaller Friends membership, with potentially a greater focus on volunteering and actively helping to promote the work of the cinema.

If any members have issues or suggestions for discussion at a future meeting or are interested in getting more involved please contact us. The agenda for each meeting is usually set two weeks before the meeting.

Stay safe.
